    Since you are a Btech in Biotechnology there is hardly a natural choice on managerial specialization for this specific stream. Instead the specialization will have to be done based on your own personality and your specific interests. If you like interacting with people, travelling etc then marketing would be an ideal choice or if you like dealing with people of different nature then HR is suitable. Select the stream based on what suits your nature only then will you be able to find a job that suits you. And it would be good to look at having MBA in Pharma too since you could work in some bio firms, where you could use your biotechnology knowledge too. But since you have opted for a college already, best seems to be Marketing major and IT minor (if it has operations too in syllabus), unless as I told you have any specific interest in people management, then you could look HR too as minor.

    MBA is a stepping stone to success. Btech will help you in gaining necessary technical skills. But when it comes to acquiring managerial skills, you would definitely need a MBA degree. Any MBA degree holder generally has a relatively better leadership and good communication skill which is very important in managerial position. The Engineers working for companies are promoted to managerial positions but they face the problem of managing people and work. In the current scenario the IT sector is growing tremendously and it is good for a Btec student to choose IT as major specialization for MBA. As Btec student they will be having a good technical background and thus choosing IT you will get more openings in IT companies which are increasing day by day.


    Similarly Human Resource is an important factor in any organization, it is important to understand the problems of them. When a Btech student is appointed as a manager in a firm, as they are coming from the technical back ground they will not be familiar in dealing with the people, so it is important to know more about them and thus it is good to choose HR as the minor specialization for MBA by a btech student.

    Re: Which MBA specialization to choose as majors and minors? Marketing, Finance, HR and IT

    First of all it depend on your interest and aptitude to choose a specialization.
    Marketing is one such specialization which has the widest scope of career opportunities.If you are outgoing, have good interpersonal skills and good in communication you can opt for marketing.There is a saying in Marketing "A Good marketing manager should be able to sell any product in any part of th world".
    Finance, if you are having analytical skills thne go for finance.It is one best specialization but it too requires excellence to go high in this field.
    Human resource, I would suggest you this if oyu are good with people.Its all about understanding employees of the organization.
    IT is mainly concerned with jobs like system manager, data administrator etc
    Choose the option judging the best whcih suits you.

    every thing is based on your interest only

    option 1: if you are good at getting work done by people you can go for HR

    option 3: if you are good at computer related administration then you can go for IT
    option 4: if you are good at tackling critical financial issues then you can go for finance

    hii, i suggest you take the Human resource as the major as it is in much in demand and quite easier subjects, related recruiting the people and managing the people in the company in there related positions.
    you can go for the marketing as minor as you are much used to it in your real life, it will easier to learn and grasp it.you can go to the bi companies like the tcs,wipro,syntel and get placed there also you can work in icici banks and other private sectors.

    I would suggest you to opt for marketing and finance as these two are the best according to the current scenario and job prospects. But it also depends on your personal interests ad potential.
    If you are able to work in a rough and tough environment , then only you should opt for marketing otherwise go for human resource which can prove a better option in that case for you.

    In my opinion, all the four ares have their own viability and have ample opportunities for deserving and hard working candidates.Lakhs of people around the world have made their career in each of the above given field and their success justifies that no area is restricted for success and growth.

    But there is always a option which is a bit superior as compared to the other options in regard to the current market scenario. In my opinion, the most promising option would be Marketing with Finance as if offers the maximum number of opportunities in this modern and dynamic world.

    But it also depends on your personal interests and potential, that which area is most suitable to you. Marketing is an area which requires a student to work according to hectic schedules and many times cumbersome situations. He may also be required to handle multiple tasks.

    So, whether to go for this option also depends on whether you can adjust in such hectic and fast pace situations or not.

    Dear
    you have done B.tech in biotec.. Now you go in MBA.
    This course is not you field. But you interest in it you have hard work in this subjects.
    This is your choice in which subjects get you more to more bright future in now days.
    Now day finance or hr field come more recruits or new jobs for freshers that you choose finance or hr in you MBA degree as minor or major subjects.
    for you researches in this field visit the website www.nseindia.com for you subjects news in the sensax in india.
    Second suggestion is marketing or hr for you . its my own opinion not the pressure.
    you do it what your heart says.

    goood luck.

    Since you are a Btech in Biotechnology there is hardly a natural choice on managerial specialization for this specific stream. Instead the specialization will have to be done based on your own personality and your specific interests. If you like interacting with people, travelling etc then marketing would be an ideal choice or if you like dealing with people of different nature then HR is suitable. Select the stream based on what suits your nature only then will you be able to find a job that suits you. And it would be good to look at having MBA in Pharma too since you could work in some bio firms, where you could use your biotechnology knowledge too.

    best of luck.

    MBA IS HELPFUL FOR YOUR FUTURE BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION LINE AND IT WILL HELP YOU IN GETTING A GOOD JOB WITH HANDY SALARY AND MUCH MORE PRESTIGE IN THE COMPANY.
    AS YOU ARE BIOTECHNOLOGY STUDENT YOU CAN GO FOR HR AS IT SO SUITABLE FOR YOU.
    BUT IN CASE IF YOU INTERESTED IN GOING THROUGH IN OTHERS LIKE IT,MARKETING OR FINANCE THEN I THINK FINANCE IS THE BEST TO PURSUE WITH IT AS YOUR CAREER.

    You have the knowledge of accounts, you should choose Finance and as you are the student of Hotel Management- HR will be the best.
    So opt both of them for your specialization.
    There is a good demand for these stream.

    Dear friend.
    MBA is a master's course in Business Administration. It turns you into a modern corporate professional with high skills of setting up,maintaining, flourishing one's business through various means of business tricks and plans.
    There are certain specialisations in MBA which make you to specialised in a particular area. This decides you in which sector or the background you will the job based on your MBA degree.
    All the specialisations are very good and provide excellent job oppurtunities. Each one has its own aroma of business ship. But on the top according to me are the Finance and IT.
    As you know that due to the huge globalisation and universality of IT and computers in each and every field the IT sector is booming in India. We can say that today IT is in fashion. It has been seen that the students with IT Specialisation in MBA get the highest paid packages than others. The job profiles take you towards the posts likd IT manager, Business area manager,etc..
    Also finance is the highest demand in the public. Due to its wide role among the public, it also provide excellent scope.
    The jobs are high paid in the finance departments, banks, insurance companies, govt companies, brokeries, firms for buying and selling the securities.

    So go with finance as the major and IT as the minor specialisation for a better career.

    : :GOOD LUCK: :
